Android is evolving with full force!

I sometimes marvel at the way Android has evolved! A couple of years back when I used my first Android phone (The beautiful Xperia SK17i), a fellow commuter in the local train was amazed when I showed him gesture based input on the keyboard.

For those who don’t know, gesture input allows you to slide your finger on the keyboard letter to letter and suggests words. It’s so accurate that I’m using it to type this post right now! Checkout the video below from 00:32 to witness gesture input.

This feature, however, is a couple of years old! Today, my latest Android (Moto X) lets me dictate things to it and types it out! Now of course, it needs a quite environment for really good accuracy!

I know iPhone has Siri. But even apple fanatics will accept that it really isn’t that robust! Though I’m yet to checkout¬†Cortana¬†on Windows Phone, I doubt it can beat Google Now!

With Android wear, Google glass and Project Ara coming up in some time, I can’t imagine how awesome everything is going to be!
